Beware phishing scams in Amazon listings 11 Jan 2017 Amazon, Phishing
by Maria Varmazis
Be careful what you click: There’s a new phishing scam hitting Amazon listings that look like legitimate deals, offering great prices on “used – like new” electronics.
After adding the super-discounted electronics to your cart, if you try to check out with your items, you’ll be told that the item — suddenly! — is no longer available.
The merchant will then contact you by email, claiming that it was all some kind of mistake and that the item is still available conveniently at a rather Amazon-esque link in their email. But that link, as you might suspect, is a fake, created to look like a legitimate Amazon payment site.

sherlew99: What a fascinating concept. Well the air above would occupy an area of space. Plus the basic word "space" is just a common term that fails to include the vast, wonderful weirdness out there between all objects out beyond our world.

sherlew99: Sorry I missed your message. Don't remember precisely what I was doing that day. Was probably doing a lot of online news reading, though. The upcoming Trump administration has me worried.
